Default Email file names within outlook.

Hi there,

Im currently doing a HD recovery due to a complete failure. The goal is to
get back 2 years of emails that were in outlook express.

Does anyone know the file names that outlook saves the emails as when WITHIN
the program. I have recoved some .DBX files but they seem to be only the
backed up ones from further back in time.

So, when emails are within outlook (not backed up) what file names to do
these go by?

Cheers .

They all are dbx files. ToolsOptionsMaintenanceStore Folder shows
the location.

Recovery Tools

DBXtract: {Cost: $5.00}

DBXpress: {$24.95, but much faster for large files}

There are no file names within the DBX file.
See Bruce' post.
